  1. Great job I have learned a lot from your tutorial. Thank you so very much.Shading has always eluded me, but you made it seen so easy.

  2. I disagree, her English is fine. However, she should be more clear with some instructions. I mean, for example you tell people to add an adjustment layer or transform it. Sure, most of us know that but some don't. You need to tell us where to find it in brackets like this: (Cmd+T or Edit\Transform).

  3. I love this design it's really unusual and original
    it symbolises hope and death and matches my personality]
    please can you make some more pictures like this
    love you lots like jelly tots
